    Children of the World, Unite!

    Ben Brantley

    April 11, 2013: Rejoice, my theatergoing comrades. The children’s revolution has arrived on these shores, and it is even more glorious than we were promised. Rush now, barricade stormers of culture, to the Shubert Theater, and join the insurrection against tyranny, television, illiteracy, unjust punishment and impoverished imaginations, led by a 5-year-old La Pasionaria with a poker face and an off-the-charts I.Q.

    Matilda, Shubert Theatre, New York – review

    Brendan Lemon

    April 11, 2013: As my performance of Matilda, the dark, delirious musical sailing on to Broadway from success in London, was letting out the other night, an enormous crowd swarmed in the street, straining to get a look at Tom Hanks as he exited his mediocre show, Lucky Guy , next door.

    Matt Windman

    April 11, 2013: The new Broadway musical “Matilda,” based on Roald Dahl’s 1988 children’s fantasy novel, was originally conceived by the Royal Shakespeare Company as family-friendly Christmastime entertainment, not unlike the cheesy and overly sentimental shows that flood New York each holiday season.

    ‘Matilda’ on Broadway: It’s magic, and not just for kids

    Peter Marks

    April 11, 2013: Dwelling among us, ladies and gentlemen, is a super-race of tiny entertainment machines. Disguised as children, they sing, act, dance, tumble and generally bedazzle, as if each of them has spent a whole lifetime or two in show biz.
